Why re-wild your garden? Three great reasons to add native, edible species to your lawn or garden are:
- 70% of Alberta songbirds feed their young insects in the spring. These same insects rely on our native plants and flowers for their food. If the insects thrive, the songbirds thrive.
- You can grow native, wild edibles and harvest food as early as mid May. Extend your, fresh, food season into the spring!
- Once the plants are established, you don’t need to water, fertilize, or fuss over them! Many are drought tolerant and draw up healthy nutrients from the soil.
During a two-hour garden consultation and walk-about in your yard, we will look for the habitat that most closely mimics nature’s eco-systems. This way we ensure the best rate of return for your new edible wild plant garden.
We also provide garden design services. If you don't know your wild edible plants, that's ok, we do. We can walk you through a design to grow native edible plants in your front or back yard.
Garden Design fee - $60 per hour
Consultation fee: $120
